A PhotoPass shot from January 25th at the castle Grotto. There's more to come from this greeting, but I wanted to share this not only because the photographer got a great moment, but also because it was the very first time a character called me cute. When I credited my parents for my manners, she said they'd taught me well - and when I also credited her and the other Princesses, she said she was so glad she and the others could help me there.
It was the end of the greeting, and after Ariel had hugged me, I realized I had forgotten to kiss her hand and said, "I'm forgetting my manners...may I?" As she realized what I meant to do, her face lit up and she said, "You'll kiss my hand? Oh, you're so nice! Thank you so much - I love it! You're so cute..." This was what resulted - our eyes at least half-closed and me looking reverent while Ariel looked dignified but also flattered.
